An inspiring and intimate memoir written by Malala’s father, Ziauddin, in which he recounts his life as a boy growing up in a tiny village in Pakistan and the inherent unfairness of his preferential treatment over that of his sisters. He vowed that when he had a daughter he would give her an education, and so founded a school which Malala was able to attend. For the last twenty years he has been an activist for the equal right of girls in patriarchal societies. He shares the horror of Malala’s shooting and how she turned this incident into a cause for reform. Father of the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner, brother and husband Ziauddin is an inspiration.
